    I have been having a problem turning on my presario cq62.
    I plug my charger in and it turns on on its own. An orange screen with an esc option comes up but a few seconds later, it turns off on its own.
    I tried pressing the power button to try and turn it back on but nothing happens.
    The charger has an orange light which insicates it is charging.
    I have no idea what is going on, please help!

    The power button might be stuck down. Try flicking it with your finger a few times, with the battery and charger disconnected. Any change ?

    No, there was no change. It continues to do the same.

    So with just the cord attached to the wall and no battery in the laptop, pushing the power button does nothing?
    If so, it likes like there is either a problem with the power adapter or the port where the power adapter plugs into the computer.

    As soon as i put in the battery, it comes on. Stays on for a few seconds then shuts off. I know the charger works because it lights up orange and it charged another laptop. With no battery in the laptop and just the charger in, the light is white.
    What to do?

    It will start up just when i take out the battery and put it back in. Doesnt matter if its plugged to the charger or not. It starts up to the compaq logo screen then shuts down.

    It's starting to look like a motherboard problem. Can you get into the Bios ?

    The Bios is where you can set up things like which device boots first, you may see something on-screen like 'press F2 to enter Bios setup. See if you can press whatever key it says for that laptop, if it works you should get a screen full of stuff.
